Graphite Anode Materials Plant (GAMP)

Grafintec’s objective is to deliver a Finnish graphite based supply chain, that is sustainable, maximises resource conversion to final products, is competitive in cost and delivers a strong economic value proposition to the country.

To achieve this we are driving development around four pillars:

  1. Develop the Aitolampi natural graphite project into a mine, to deliver a base load production volume of high grade material.
  2. Build a Finnish value chain for anode material production with European sourced raw material, both secondary sourced (recycled or by product), alongside primary natural ore.
  3. Become a producer of spherical graphite and other upgraded, high purity, value added graphite products.
  4. Establish strong strategic partnership for development of Finnish anode materials value chain.
